  • This is what a historical novel should be!

    AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER is the best historical novel I have ever read, bar none! Granted at 600 pages, it cannot be read in one sitting, but don’t let it deter you; it is so compelling, you will not skip one line. The authors used countless letters to recreate the life of Martha “Patsy” Jefferson, Thomas Jefferson’s daughter, and through her eyes, we witness the American Revolution, the French Revolution, as well as the life of an admirable woman. It was not easy being the daughter of such a great man, and Patsy had to make many sacrifices, most of the time for her father’s career. It is most commendable that Ms. Dray and Ms. Kamoie managed, with much flair and panache, to make AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER so lively and intimate; it is written in the first person, and it feels like we’re part of Patsy’s life, whether on a plantation or in the salons of Paris. AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER is very well written and everything flows seamlessly. Needless to say, it is extremely well documented, but also richly detailed, and the characters are described so vividly, they come alive on the page. AMERICA’S FIRST DAUGHTER is a remarkable book that will captivate generations to come. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

  • Much more enjoyable than the same old textbook

    Where are more stars???? I haven't read a historical fiction novel in many years that has left such an impression. It wasn't just me. My two teenage sons became addicted to the story as well. As a homeschooling mother I am always looking for ways to encourage learning. This book did that and so much more. The book was so well written that we were transported to an earlier time. Some characters left such an impact that they happily researched and completed assignments so they could go on to the next chapters. I had to stop myself for moving ahead because I would start discussing what happened in chapters they had not read. This is the most fun I have ever had studying Thomas Jefferson. The insight the book gave into his life and the people around him as made me want to know and understand more. My only disappointment is that that authors' next book will be after my children are done with school. I am sure that they will gladly read it and discuss the things that have influenced America.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A trip back to the time of Thomas Jefferson

    I thoroughly enjoyed my trip back in time to the era of searching for political freedoms while reading "America's First Daughter". The story spins out with reference to the many letters which Thomas Jefferson wrote to his daughter and many political acquaintances. I enjoyed the first person point of view and the sweeping aspect as many decades were covered. It was very lengthy but I did not tire of reading it. Anyone who enjoys historical fiction or non fiction would enjoy this novel.
